Christmas Village in Ogden has been noted as one of the best Christmas celebrations and displays in the US and it’s right here on Historic 25th Street!

Open nightly now through Jan 1, stop in and explore nearly 70 cottage style houses, a multitude of twinkling lights, and all the small town charm the village has to offer.

Take a ride aboard the “Christmas Village Express” Miniature Train. The ride is FREE, and is open Mondays through Fridays from 6-9 pm. and Saturdays from 5-9 pm. Santa will be greeting children in his castle Monday thru Friday from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm and Saturdays from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm, November 28th until December 23rd. There will also be live entertainment in the Amphitheater Tuesday thru Friday from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm.

Christmas Village initially began in 1962 and has grown ever since. This year there are 65 cottages on display, take a virtual tour and learn about each house, the year it was built, plus who sponsored and designed the homes. Roughly a dozen of the village cottages represent 25th Street businesses, including the Historic 25th Street Association, Roosters Brewing, Liquid Canvas, and more.

During the holiday season many stores are open extended retail hours. Check with retailers for specifics. Or browse online through Shift Your Spending, encouraging everyone to commit to spending a minimum of 10% on locally purchased gifts this season.
